Celebrate Recovery is based on God’s Word, the Bible.

This program recognizes the importance of God’s healing power in our lives. Using the eight recovery principles found in the Beatitudes and Christ-centered 12 steps, people have the opportunity to experience lasting change. By sharing personal experiences, strengths and hopes with each other, people learn how to accept God’s grace in solving life’s problems.

By working the Christ-centered steps and applying their biblical principles found in the Beatitudes, we begin to grow spiritually, we become free from our addictive, compulsive, dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom enables us to experience peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.

When Jesus taught the Sermon on the Mount he began by stating “Eight Ways to Be Happy.” Today we call them the Beatitudes. From a conventional viewpoint, most of these statements sound like contradictions. But when you fully understand what Jesus is saying, you’ll realize that these eight principles are God’s road to recovery, wholeness, growth, and spiritual maturity.

This recovery program:

  • is forward-looking! Rather than wallowing in the past, or dredging up painful memories, Celebrate Recovery focuses on the future. Regardless of what has already happened, the solution is to start making wise choices now and depend on Christ’s power to help you make those changes.
  • emphasizes personal responsibility. Instead of being the victim, this program helps people face up to their own poor choices and deal with what they can do something about. We cannot control all that happens to us. But we can control how we respond to everything.
  •  emphasized spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ. Lasting recovery cannot happen without this step. Everybody needs Jesus.
  • recognizes the biblical truth that we need each other in order to grow spiritually and emotionally. It is built around small group interaction and the fellowship of a caring community. Celebrate Recovery is built on the New Testament principle that we don’t get well by ourselves. We need each other.
  • addresses all types of habits, hurts and hang-ups. Some recovery programs deal only with alcohol or drugs or another single problem. But Celebrate Recovery is a “large umbrella” enabling participants to deal with a limitless number of issues.
